San Bernardino County Supervisor Curt Hagman reportedly “introduced the idea to SBCTA after touring The Boring Co. facility in Hawthorne and taking a ride in a modified Tesla
through the test tunnel
The reason given is that the tunnel
concept from The Boring Company looks much cheaper and faster than anything above the ground (potential rail projects).
Again, these are not necessarily similar to the aforementioned vans, but they are original renderings of potential shuttles for The Boring Company: The airport loop would connect Rancho Cucamonga and Ontario International Airport.
Perhaps the more interesting thing about the story, though, is that Tesla
is reportedly working with The Boring Company to produce 12-person electric vans for such routes.
Zach has long-term investments in Tesla
[TSLA] — after years of covering solar and EVs, he simply has a lot of faith in this company and feels like it is a good cleantech
company to invest in.
